‘Out to Swim’ brave low sea temperatures

Besi Besemar May 24, 2019

Over twenty swimmers from Out to Swim South, braved their first sea swim of 2019 in water temperatures of 13c at Hove seafront last month.

THEY were joined by team members from London and a few from the local Salty Birds swimming groups.

A mixed variety of swimmers took to the sea in Hove, with some completing over a mile, while others swam a short distance, or just a few minutes for a splash around.

It was all about being together and getting in the sea followed by a hearty lunch.

Future dates for sea swims will be announced soon on social media.

Out to Swim South was established in 2006 as part of the main London aquatic group. They are a group of sociable LGBTQ+ and allies who swim for fun, fitness or competitions, and provide a friendly environment for those who prefer the social aspect of the club, in the Brighton & Hove and Sussex area.

There are three sessions a week of which at least two are coached.

All members share an enthusiasm to improve with like minded people and be part of an LGBT+ inclusive club.
